Inverness, often described as the Gateway to the Highlands, is a thriving commercial and industrial center. One of the fastest-growing cities in Europe, Inverness is home to an expanding high-tech community. During the height of the tourist season, the city and the surrounding area overflow with visitors intent on finding the mysterious monster that is supposed to be hiding in the murky waters of nearby Loch Ness. Numerous cruise options are offered on the loch. Visitors who prefer to stay on dry land can search for shops instead of monsters by strolling along the River Ness, which runs through the heart of the city. Our United Kingdom trip builder website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
